1. Cook your quinoa with your favorite method. We use a rice cooker, and just put the 1 cup quinoa and the 2 cups water and press the button. On a stovetop, bring quinoa to a boil, and then quickly turn down to low, cover and let cook on low for about 15 minutes.

2. When quinoa is cooked, transfer to a medium serving bowl and let cool.

3. Top with your veggies, seeds, and feta.

4. Wait until serving to add your dressing, if you are bringing this to a potluck or preparing in advance.

5. Store in fridge, and this will keep well (without dressing ideally) for several days.

Easy to store in the fridge for a few days!
